30 August 2010 - Bär & Karrer breaks new ground with the training of its employees

August 2010

The Swiss law firm Bär & Karrer AG is significantly expanding the training pro-gram for its employees. In cooperation with the St. Gallen University (HSG), the Bär & Karrer College (BKC) was established. It will start running in Fall 2010. In the training program, associates attend lectures and seminars which aim at a strongly practically oriented in-depth development of existing professional know-ledge. In addition to legal topics the BKC will be offering courses in business ad-ministration, economics and other areas.

This integrated professional training supported by both in-house experts and ex-ternal specialists was designed to heighten the abilities of the associates working with the firm and to enable them to best respond to our clients' needs. By having established the BKC, Bär & Karrer lay emphasis on the importance it ascribes to the continuing education and professional development of its employees.

The training within the Bär & Karrer College is formally recognized. After approx-imately two years, the associates complete the first part of the training with a certificate. After another two years they acquire a diploma of the St. Gallen Uni-versity. Both degrees may be counted towards the acquisition of an Executive MBA at the St. Gallen University.
